Follow this link.

At the bottom of page agree to terms and install.

On the "configuration page" and in the 1st drop down screen select your printer.

On the 2nd drop down screen is where I was getting confused as I have a Epson Stylus Photo RX425 but couldn't see it in the listings, it is there, look for:-
"Epson Stylus CX4600(4500)/CX36x0(3500)/RX42x(430)PM-A700" and select.

Next click this page off and in the botom right quick launch panel right click the multi coloured printer icon.

Select the "Pretection Counter" then "Reset Pretection Counter"

There you have it, switch off and back on the printer and all should be well.........

    Thank you sooooo much! Needed printer urgently to prepare some invoices for my business and was mortified when the error message came up! Your solution fixed the problem, and although it may only turn out to be temporary, at least it buys me some more time (not least as I have just bought a huge batch of new ink cartridges!). Many, many Thanks!

    Thanks It did work. Thought I would have to get new printer. Took a bit of trolling round the screens, but got there

With the printer turned off, hold down the Power, Ink and Paper buttons simultaneously for 12 seconds. This should reset the 'error' message.
Note; do not reset protection counter without replacing or cleaning the ink pad, this can cause leakage and printer head damage.

Epson RX425 Ink Cartridge problem

First make sure you are placing the right
color cartridge into the right slot.
Most Printers are touchy about the
installation of ink cartridges. If the
instructions say to press the cartridge
into the slot until you hear a loud click,
that's what they mean. If at first you
don't succeed, remove the cartridge and
reinsert it into the slot again and press
on it hard till it clicks.
Then your printer should work properly.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

I have an epson Stylus photo RX420 and have downloaded SSC Service Utility V4.30 to resolve issues with flashing E and Service lights etc. The problem is that the Epson Stylus Photo RX420 does not appear...

Yes, it is. Select CX4600(4500)/CX36x0(3500)/RX42x(430)/PM-A700.
RX42x covers RX420/RX425.
Minimise to tray, click on icon in notification area and select protection counter - reset protection counter.
Its there for a reason mind, so replace or clean the overflow sponge first!

Thats because they are. most common is the overflow sponge, you can reset ths using SSC service utility (google it) but be warned, the sponge willlneed replaceing or cleaning, or you will be leaking ink all over the place!
